It is a privilege to join the ranks of ATS members in many discussions. however it is somewhat regrettable that i am immediately burdened with a choice:

To either ladle you all with 20 unnecessary comments such as single line responses indicating my approval or disapproval of your posts in order to quickly gain access to create topics of my own.

Or - to spend a long time reading many many threads and coming up with something to each which is worth saying - which has not already been said by somebody else. A time consuming activity when your mind is full of things you want to share.

Obviously the concept of this 20 post requirement is necessary to filter the more troll natured amongst us from overwhelming the site content, but it is still somewhat restrictive to new ambitious members of the community.

With all this said i must apologise for the first seemingly pointless post i have created and i will try my best to avoid cluttering up the place with further mindless brain toilet.

Many greetings and such, a simple lad from England

greetings earthling.
dont worry you'll have your 20 posts before you know it.

If you've got something important to share I see no reason you shouldn't try to quickly leave 20 responses to threads. If you don't want to clog up "important" threads with meaningless banter, respond to new members like yourself or browse the General Chit Chat forum.

You can also respond in this thread..

Welcome to ATS. =]

You can reply to every welcome post here. That is very polite, and counts towards your 20 posts.

This seems like perhaps the best way to waste that 20 post barrier, but as far as having something "important" to I would say perhaps not. just a few thoughts. i'm not a person who is or claims to be in contact with anything supernatural or above the general order of simple society. im just a man who thinks about things more than the average Joe id say.

Another way to get some posts under your belt is to head over to the Off Topic section. Scroll down to the bottom on the forum page or click the tab on the recent post pages. There's a chit chat section, music, movies, rant, art, etc. All sorts of light topics that are easy to join in.

I don't know why i didn't think to just respond here in my own post continuously to clear the mark. thankfully you are all clearly full of more common sense than me and pointed me on my way. But seen as you asked and i have said nothing of myself in my own introduction i suppose i should say a little.

My favourite topics here, for which i have stalked the forums of this site for a long while tend to be ( in no particular order ) Ancient civilisations and the notion that there is more to earth past than is typically learned by most, Philosophical questions relating mostly to existence and such, Secret societies and hidden knowledge, the aliens forum (though i feel only a real gem comes out of there every few hundred posts that go in). and generally most topics that society doesn't address to my satisfaction.

welcome home..

don't sweat it...

Just respond here a bunch of times....and then find a hot topic and get in on it....

really there must be ONE thread where you can chime in and have a good back and forth with some one...

if anything just keep it simple and find some one who knows more than you on something and ask away.....

20 posts go damn quick...
